Cancer Full Moon-Are you nurturing yourself?
This Cancer Full Moon is the first Full Moon of 2023 invoking the archetypal energies of Cancer/Mother Nurturer, Capricorn/ Father Protector along with Uranus/ Inventor and Rebel.
The Sun is in Capricorn, ruled by Saturn, which gets a bad press. The positive is Mastery. Saturn changes sign in May into Pisces for the next 2 and a half years which has a less harsh energy. That’s big news for 2023.
Its a very emotional time as Neptune is also involved.
If you are sensitive to energy, maybe with a lot of planets in Pisces or Cancer, or strong contacts to Neptune then you may be temped to shut down the news which is full of negativity. Rather I suggest that you strengthen your boundaries. Recognise that “No” is a complete sentence.
I highly recommend the book Intimate Conversations with the Divine, Prayer, Guidance and Grace by Caroline Myss. She writes that having a Prayer Life is vital for her and how important is the power of language (Mercury). She asks us to pay attention to the words we use. Is it a crisis or a wake up call-an opportunity?
Mars Retrograde is moving forward soon!
Mars the Warrior will go forward direct on January 12th. That’s good news! Until then be aware of miscommunications as Gemini is ruled by Mercury also retrograde. Check all travel arrangements. Double check that your emails have arrived. Be aware that forcing forward movement is like trying to drive a car with the wheels spinning as if its stuck in mud!
To remind you, it went retrograde on October 30th. With Mars in Gemini its almost impossible to get into a proper dialogue with those in power as the establishment (as seen by Saturn strong in Aquarius) refuses to budge. Mars will finally leave Gemini on March 25th 2023 when it moves into Cancer.
Mercury in Capricorn Retrograde
The other main news is that Mercury is now firmly in Capricorn. It joins the Sun, the Throne room of the King on January 8th.
It went retrograde on 29th December, so it stays in Capricorn until 11th February- a full 2 months. This is good news for all earth signs, Capricorn, Taurus and Virgo. Plus, the water signs, Scorpio, Pisces and Cancer can also benefit.
As Mercury is travelling through the best business sign of the zodiac- Capricorn -until February 11th, I suggest that you focus on organising, structure, testing and completing all unfinished projects. Wait until Mercury goes direct before launching your plans.
Mercury and Uranus
There are 3 key dates when Mercury forms a positive aspect to Uranus. These were December 17th 2022, then January 8th and January 30th 2023. Ideas can come out of the blue, so pay attention to all messages-via email, WhatsApp or Facebook. Or of course what you overhear or dream about. Ideal time for choosing tarot cards. I recommend The Inner Child Tarot by Lerner and Lerner, or Osho Zen along with Rider Waite.
- Full Moon January 6th in Cancer
- Mars in Gemini retrograde goes direct on January 12th, 2023.
- Mercury in Capricorn From December 6th. Went retrograde on 29th December. Stays in Capricorn until 11th February 2023. Goes direct January 18th
- Venus in Aquarius January 3rd 2023 until January 27th, when it moves into Pisces.
- Sun into Aquarius January 20th
- New Moon January 21st in Aquarius
Uranus goes direct on January 22nd, so from then on all planets will be moving forward until the next Mercury retrograde on April 21st.

Want to know the key dates to watch out for in 2023?
It’s a far better cosmic picture than the last 2 years, there are some big astrological opportunities this year. Want divine guidance on when they happen, and what they mean for you?
The astrology of 2023 is an important year as finally the tense relationship of Saturn in Aquarius to Uranus in Taurus is over. The fixed signs of the zodiac-Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius can finally breathe a sigh of relief!
The nodal axis changes sign in 2023 into Aries North Node and Libra South Node. We need to re-evaluate our relationships to find balance. This axis focuses us on Mars and Venus, the lovers. Control results in power struggles and fights.
Venus -planet of love and money will go retrograde this year. It enters Leo on 5th June, goes retrograde on 23 July and finally leaves Leo on 9th October. It will change from an Evening Star to a Morning Star.
Mars -the planet of courage and the Warrior energises 7 signs, from Gemini to Sagittarius. Once it goes direct in Gemini on January 12th we get the go ahead. By 25th March it will finally leave Gemini where it has been for over 6 months.
Jupiter -the planet of Great Good Fortune moves quickly through Aries then into Taurus on 16th May. This is a feel good factor, especially for all 3 fire signs, Aries, Leo and Sagittarius. Then earth signs, Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn will benefit.
Saturn begins a whole new journey in Pisces. In 2023 it will sextile (a positive aspect) Jupiter in Taurus in June 2023. Look back to 1994-if you can remember-when it was last in Pisces.
Uranus continues in Taurus. Neptune remains in Pisces. Pluto in Capricorn, then briefly in Aquarius. All three go retrograde every year and can indicate life changing events if they activate a natal planet in your chart.
Your 3 Personal Astrology Reports for 2023
The 3 Personal Astrology 2023 Reports are worth £45 if bought separately. These reports are based on your date, time and place of birth.
NB. They are both calculated for the same person.
1st two Reports: SkyLog by Steven Forrest
The first report called ‘Sky Log‘ gives you over 80 pages of in-depth predictions for the coming year. This report is based on your transits and secondary progressions. The author Steven Forrest, has a great style and explains clearly and poetically – with no jargon – what the planetary transits signify for you.
“The future isn’t crystallized. It’s a wavering, quivering web of possibilities. How will they manifest? Much depends upon how you wield the magical wild card we call your freedom.
The planets offer advice. In a sense, they recommend certain choices over others. They seem biased toward your evolution. They often suggest that you take the less familiar path, the one that moves you into richer fields of your own potentiality.”
This report is based on your transits and secondary progressions for the year ahead. There are two parts to the report:-
THE INVITATION: First, the big questions. In the part of the report called THE INVITATION, he gives you that “mountain-top” perspective that enables you to make sense of the details. Steven speaks in normal english- no jargon – and gives a real depth of understanding to the major planets affecting you in the year ahead.
THE MEANS: He turns your attention to some secondary factors and offers suggestions, help, and support in responding to those big questions.
This amazing 80 plus page report is easy to understand and very detailed. Sent as 2 reports for 6 months each.
3rd Report: Reference Diary by Stephanie Johnson
The third report written by Stephanie Johnson is approx. 20 pages and includes a full colour birth chart and easy bar graph reference for the year. See above for an example. The entries are sorted by the exact date on which each event occurs, with the planets involved. She writes:-
“When meteorologists forecast the weather we understand that they are not telling us how to live our lives. Rather they are giving us information that may help us make our own decisions. As far as the weather is concerned our major decisions are whether or not to dress warmly or to take an umbrella.
The astrological system of transits is offering us much the same information. It is giving us an indication of the emotional and intellectual weather of our lives. It is up to us to decide our own destiny.”
